Addiction & Compulsive Behaviors

Addiction & Compulsive Behavior Counseling

Addictions and compulsive behavior are chronic and can be potentially life-threatening with the power to affect an entire family.

Addiction is characterized by compulsive use of drugs or alcohol despite experiencing negative consequences as a result of substance use and often occurs alongside anxiety or depression. Addressing an addiction requires more than good intentions and can be incredibly difficult, even for those who are ready to commit to change.

Fortunately, addiction treatments are available to help people counter addiction’s powerful disruptive effects. Research shows that combining addiction treatment medications with behavioral therapy is the best way to ensure success for most patients. Treatment approaches that are tailored to each patient’s abuse patterns and any co-occurring medical, psychiatric, and social problems can lead to sustained recovery and a life without abuse.

According to the NIAAA, answering the following four questions can help you find out if you or a loved one has a drinking problem:

  • Have you ever felt you should cut down on your drinking?
  • Have people annoyed you by criticizing your drinking?
  • Have you ever felt bad or guilty about your drinking?
  • Have you ever had a drink first thing in the morning to steady your nerves or to get rid of a hangover?
  • One “yes” answer suggests a possible alcohol problem. More than one “yes” answer means it is highly likely that a problem exists. If you think that you or someone you know might have an alcohol problem, it is important to see a doctor or other health care provider right away. They can help you determine if a drinking problem exists and plan the best course of action.
